Registering a death

If you have had any difficulties in registering a death over the last few months and in particular since the new rules came into force can you please contact me.

I am intending to meet with an MSP to discuss these issues.

Issues include being unable to get an appointment with a Registrar for a number of days which then leads to delays.  Inverclyde for example. Doctor fails to sign the medical certificate.  The relative meets with the Registrar but he or she cannot cannot register the death until a signed medical certificate is produced.  A second appointment is then needed.  It is also not clear if a crematorium can make a provisional booking without a death being registered.
